A Father's Strength 6/5/13

There you lay
Frozen in time
Your beloved face
You seemed almost

Your father stood beside you
Hand in your hair
Showing you today
As he did every day
Just how much
He cherished you
But you knew
You always knew
And returned the love
With every smile
With every breath

No parent should have
To stand as he did today
To have to see his child
Laid to rest
No pain could be greater
No loss more profound
Seeing your dad today
As strong as he was for you
For all of us
But feeling his pain
Under the surface
Seems to make
The loss of your light
That much more
